Raynes | 13 months

Sweet. Curious. Happy. Little. Fast. Smart.

This is how I would describe little Ruh nay nays at 13 months.

You weigh 23 pounds. I know this because I took you to see “Auntie Anna” this morning for a double ear infection. A first. You have been so sweet, without so much as tears that only your Mama would have known something was wrong with little ginger.

Favorite (new) foods: lasagna, sausage and grilled cheese.

Demeanor: Nothing has changed, sweet sweet sweet. You wake up happy and go to bed happy. I am enjoying this while it lasts.

Mobility: You are running and always on the move. We can hardly catch you and have to keep the doors shut to every single room because that curosity of yours can be quite messy.

Firsts: First sentence: Bye Bye Da Da. Still waiting for you to say my name.. perhaps when you are 6? You could care less about television although you may have broken a record and watched it for a solid 5 mintues this month. Another first.

Sleep: I am loving that you are still napping twice a day and sleeping 12 hours at night. With all your running around it’s no wonder.

Physical Appearance: Aunt Britty says you have a mullet and need a cut, but your Daddy and I like it long.  You cut another bottom tooth this month, you now have 8 total (four on top, four on the bottom). Your body is long and lean although I do believe I saw some cellulite appear on your fanny last week. Still in size 3 diapers but I buy you size 4 to boost your confidence.

“What a long, strange trip it’s been.”
